I want to capture genuine movement as it unfolds in light; I want a romantic air inside the frame.
Every day I adapt to realize these elements before me.
As I’ve grown in my work, I have developed movement in my photos and my technique. When
I’m working, I don’t pose people-- I find natural, dynamic moments, the moments that may get
lost or muted in the chaos of a single day. I look at someone and I see a story, and it’s this story
that’s so intriguing to me. As someone lives their life, it’s my privilege to document it, to record
that life with rich light and color. It’s important to me that the end result be a product of that
time and feeling.
I’m an Upstate New York-based photographer with a decade worth of experience and a heart set
on capturing candid moments in people’s lives. My passion and experience is in wedding,
fitness, and portrait photography. My work has been featured by the internationally known
fitness company Lululemon Athletica and local fitness communities, including CrossFit
Syracuse, O Yoga Studio, and Urban Life Athletics, and I’m continuing to add to my portfolio.
I’m fascinated by the endless variety of frames to shoot. Each subject is wholly individual, so
I’m always going to find different emotions and different perspectives; it’s what keeps me so in
love with this job. I’m always glad to work with clients who are as drawn to art as I am and who
can relate to the feeling I convey in my work.
